Experimental Investigations into Roughness Finished by Abrasive Jet with Grinding Wheel as Restraint
The process technique on abrasive jet finishing process with wheel as restrain was investigated by experimental. The effects of different particle size, abrasive concentration, machining cycles, the velocity of grinding wheel and medium type on surface quality were analyzed. Experiments were performed with plane grinder M7120 and workpiece material 40Cr steel. The machined surface morphology was studied using Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) and microscope and microcosmic geometry parameters were measured with TALYSYURF5 instrument respectively. The experimental results under percentage 10 abrasive concentration, Al2O3 abrasive particle with W7 size and machining 20～30 circles showing the novelty process method, not only to attain higher surface form accuracy, to diminish grinding defects such as severely deformation, surface layer pollution and ground burnout, but also to can acquire efficiently free defects finishing surface with Ra0.15～1.6µm and finally achieve high efficiency, high precision and low roughness values. Furthermore, integrate grinding process and abrasive jet finishing process into one feature.
